Amazon isn’t just for delivering to the home or workplace anymore. Now, the service will deliver packages straight to a number of Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles.
Amazon and General Motors announced in-car delivery begins today, April 24, with Amazon Key technology. Those who choose to take advantage of the system must opt-in for Amazon Key and link an active OnStar subscription. After that, shoppers can simply choose the “In-Car” delivery option during checkout. The service is no extra cost for Amazon Prime subscribers.
Customers will receive a delivery notification when the package is on its way and when it has been delivered with the vehicle relocked. Amazon will only deliver to vehicles accessible in public areas. The carrier service won’t break into a garage to leave a new set of pots in a vehicle’s trunk, basically.
Instead, the vehicle must be accessible in a driveway, in a parking lot, or parked on the street.
The service will only work with 2015 and newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles. GM and Amazon have rolled the service out to 37 cities across the U.S. with more areas to come.
